    Part 2: Starts at 01:01:51 - Original iPhone Software Team Leader Scott Forstall in Conversation with John Markoff

    How did iPhone come to be? On June 20, four members of the original development team will discuss the secret Apple project, which in the past decade has remade the computer industry, changed the business landscape, and become a tool in the hands of more than a billion people around the world.
